Hi Gus.

Good question, but first!

Your corsair is utterly gorgeous.  Were I to see  it with a background I'd think it real.

Yes, they begin course and get fine up to 10,000 grade. They are very comfortable to use both wet and dry. :thumbsup2:

What type of pylons did they use to hang those on a P-47?

  • Gus, if you are unable to get them in your area, let me know and I'll grab some and send them to you. :thumbsup2:

Thanks Dale. I'll see what I can find and I may be back in touch. :D

The Spad was one of my favorite kits when I was a kid. I opened the box to have a look...

Just arrived today courtesy Ernie and the Christmas Raffle.

First WNW kit I've had and after a quick look I see why everyone raves about the quality.

I think I'm going to practice rigging on my old paint mule before I risk butchering this!

The Hs.129B-2 Finally arrived at one of my local (Australian) hobby stores ... So ... having it sent, along with a couple of other ZM kits they held back for me - It arrived at the post office a day or two ago. I'd like to say that I'm now up to date with the entire 1/32 ZM collection ... except they sneakily tucked another couple of Skyraider kits in before the first of the Hs.129 kits.

 

Never mind ... as soon as those rock up to one of my other suppliers ... I'll be sorted ...

Nice new kits Rog! I've got these two and have built the Skyraider. The wings even fold as designed.

At the moment ... all ZM kits are for the collection - except for those in the stash with multiple kits ... of which i have a couple.

I have kits SWS-01 - 14 and 17 ... The 2 new Skyraider kits are 15 & 16 and I have to wait until they arrive at the store so I can grab those ... Once I have those in the stash I can maybe look at getting another Hs.129B-2 to build.

When I get my eyesight straight again :icon_eek: with the help of some nice wine, I will tell you that this Pfalz is also my first WNW kit and yes the rigging part is daunting, but somehow it worked well with fishing line and Bobs Aluminum tubes and lots of patience and sharp tweezers.

Bad hair day with my Pfalz
